Welcome Rwanda!

Frankie and Arthur.
Big Brother Africa is back, and this time there's a new nation in the house. Rwanda, known as the "Land of a Thousand Hills", make their first appearance and we can't wait to see what their representatives, Arthur and Frankie, bring to the Hotshot mix.

With its tropical climate, lush rainforests and a rich tradition of music and dance, there's a lot that makes Rwanda loved and renowned. Will the fresh faces adapt to the pressures of the game and make their country proud?

As a nation distinguished by its friendly people, we're eager to see whether the Rwandese will be the laid-back types who base their strategy on observation, tact and plenty of friends in the house, or whether they'll surprise us by keeping everyone on their toes with wily charm.

Season 9 could be the beginning of something great and produce the next Rwandan hotshot, a star in the making, ready to take their place alongside celebrities such as Tom Close, Jean-Paul Samputu and MC Tino.

Perhaps the other East African nations – Tanzania, Kenya, Zambia, Uganda and Malawi – will take them under their wing, showing them the ropes along the way. West Africa is back in the house with Ghana representing, as well as three-time winner Nigeria, bringing back their celebrated strength and style.

Namibia returns as well, and with Dillish from The Chase's graceful win on the previous season, the pressure is on for the southern African country. Showcasing the rest of the region is South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique.

Do you think Rwanda will leave their mark or do you think another nation will steal the spotlight?

Big Brother Hotshots launches on Sunday, October 5, 2014 at 19:00 CAT on AfricaMagic DStv Channel 150.
